Snarky Candiru2

Remembrance Day 2016

Warren continues to be an abrasive jerk when he jams it to Mike for having something on his mind that isn't what they used to call Iran.

(Strip Number 4888, Original Publication Date, 13 November 1987)

Panel 1: Old Man Warren drones on and puts his class to sleep babbling away about the geography of European Russia.

Panel 2: At random, he asks Mike what country used to be called Persia. This sudden interruption in the stream of boring speech confuses our boy.

Panel 3: Since Warren doesn't realize that he's a plodding speaker with a voice that lulls his class to speak, he puts on the phony solicitude when pointing out that he'd awoken Mike.

Panel 4: He then blames it all on the kid when he says that once again, he's confused a glassy stare with a look of interest.

Summary: Raise your hands if you've ever had a teacher who didn't realize that he or she was a very boring speaker who couldn't help but put you to sleep. In Milborough, we call that droning failure "Mr Warren."
